Villa Johansen, Luxury Villa by Willa Nordic

December 31, 2014 luxury home design, Modern House Design

Villa Johansen, designed by Willa Nordic, is a great example of functional and practical design combined with Asian serenity. Starting from the garden that features an amazing pond it took its inspiration from the Japanese and Chinese cultures. The black and white facade provides the character to the house. The interior also features very light colors with black and dark brown splashes. Although there are some elements of luxury as inside as outside of it. Marble floors, decorative stones, generous glazing and stunning staircase make that possible. [ Willa Nordic ]

A A House in Sao Paulo by Andrade Morettin Architects

December 31, 2014 contemporary house design

This A A house is located in Sao Paulo was designed by Andrade Morettin Architects.
Description from Architects:
This is a residence embedded in an urban lot in the neighborhood of Morumbi, Sao Paulo. Through its implantation on the site, it seeks to leave its ground floor entirely free, giving continuity to the public space. To enhance this potential, the glass prism that serves as a “natural light injector” inside the house, is installed so that it can be lifted up (like a crane), completely freeing the entrance level.

Sunset Hill Residence by Robin Chell Design
Description from Robin Chell Design :
Built on a hillside overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, this new 2500-square foot home features expansive windows and a combination of warm, durable materials, including concrete flooring and natural cedar siding. The interior scheme focused on a modern, neutral palette while expressing the architecture and maximizing light throughout the home. A separate office for the client was created in the lower floor, introducing a true live-work use into this neighborhood. A central “lantern” comprised of an open stairway and three-story light well was designed as the visual and functional focal point for the home.
Robin Chell Design also coordinated and specified exterior materials, color palette and building massing with the architects.

Solar Awning by XDESIGN, Reduced Solar Heat Gain Though Windows

December 30, 2014 Other

The Solar awning provides a positionable solar array, easy accessed to set at the otimal angle seasonally. An additional performance benefit is the reduced solar heat gain though windows.
The solar awning strategy does not hide the solar cells on existing surfaces, but produces a highly visible feature that signals the internal systems externally. Internally the feature exploits the shading effects of the solar awning, patterning the interior surfaces and displaying the external conditions. [ XDESIGN ]
